F20 jack point rear

Hi there, im about to change the rear springs and brake discs on the rear of my f20. Since there is no place to put jackstands after using the jacking point i was wondering if i could put the jack some other place? Is it safe to jack up the car on the dif housing? And then put one jackstand on each side on the jacking point?

I dont want to work on the car while not supported with jackstands.

That is what I have done on all other BMWs I have worked on, and I never had any problems with it. Just juse a soft jack pad to distribute the load a little.

It is in the manual: you must avoid that! I guess you can put the jackstands right next to the "dedicated" jacking points: did you notice that service lift the (whole) car touching it like that? (I haven't tried it myself though!) You can also for other suggestions (pictures, videos).
